HCS Officials Participate in Absenteeism, Truancy Summit back button

20-April-2016 (HCS) - Student Services Division employees from Hoover City Schools were pleased to participate in the 2016 Absenteeism and Truancy Summit on April 7-8, 2016 hosted by the Alabama State Department of Education.  The summit “What Works in Alabama” showcased the efforts of local schools and systems around the state, with detailed information from leading experts in the areas of education such as Dr. Balfanz of the Everyone Graduates Center, John Hopkins University.

Significant gains have been seen in the number of students with increased attendance, promotion to the 10th grade, and reduced discipline infractions at the school level. Best practices from around the state were shared at the summit.

Hoover will be taking further steps to educate parents in the importance of regular attendance as well the pitfalls associated with lack of attendance in elementary, intermediate, middle, and high school levels.  The partnership between family and the school will be a very important component in reducing chronic absenteeism and developing each child to their fullest academic ability.  

Hoover City Schools looks forward to building on its existing program to improve attendance and encourage positive student behavior.
